# Can a compound with indirectly bonded carbon and silicon atoms within the same aromatic system be called organosilicon compound?

Wikipedia says that organosilicon compounds are organic compounds with carbon-silicon bonds.

Does the class of organosilicon compounds include compounds in which the carbon and silicon are only indirectly bonded, for example the (hypothetical) molecule 1,3,5-trihydroxy-4,6-dioxa-2-lambda3-oxa-3,5-disilacyclohex-1-ene(3+), in which the carbon and silicon atoms are not formally directly bonded but are part of the same aromatic (six π-electrons) ring, sharing the same aromatic bonding orbitals?

Here's what the molecule looks like (direct uploadd won't work for some reason...)

• Is there the possibility to include a picture of this hypothetical compound. Not all of us might be familiar with this type of naming scheme. (Yes, I really have not a single clue, what this compound might look like.) – Martin - マーチン Nov 28 '19 at 14:36

Organosilicon compounds fall under the broader category of Organometallic compounds. It is a requirement that in organometallic compounds, atleast one $$\ce{C-M}$$ bond should exist. Since Si is only bonded to oxygen atoms in your compound, the given compound is not an organosilicon compound.
